Rainy Day Walk

The theme of this weekend seems to be one of walking. My friend, Dennis, came over at noon and we strolled down to Granville Island. It wasn't very warm and the skies were on the verge of letting go of their plethora of water droplets, but there were still quite a few
people out & about. We bought some lunch and ate it outside. There was a great vocalist with a guitar providing a nice ambience for everyone around. He often sings in French but today he was providing a variety of songs from different genres.
We then decided to walk west, over to Kits Beach. This is what I frequently call the "million dollar walk" because the views are absolutely breathtaking ... and I'm not just talking about the constant parade of female joggers! Stopping at the famous dog beach, we saw a variety of pooches. I don't know if it was just a coincidence, but the smaller dogs and larger dogs seemed to separate themselves into two distinct groups.

This last shot is my favourite. The bright red tulips provide an interesting contrast against the cloudy North Shore.
